Training

I’ve been practicing out sit/stays around the house and on walks with Gimli much more lately. He’s been a particularly difficult dog to train simply because of his unknown past, I’m going to assume there was some sort of abuse based on his reaction to even the most pleasant corrections I give him. I’ll tell him, “oops,” in a friendly voice and gently place him back into position but half of the time he’ll collapse to the ground and roll over. If training is going on a little bit longer than he’d like and he feels overwhelmed he freezes and stares at the ground.
Luckily these instances are happening less frequently and he’s becoming more and more confident. He’s such a good boy and so much fun to work with.
